Red. I have 3 XS's and will never look back. No matter what I use them for. I have 10' 3-8 I use for bait and 2 9' 1-3 I use for plugs.. Great rods. JOe

Its 4 hours for me to drive to fish the surf. I do it often. It will always be worth it.!!

I LOVE the XS96MH that I have for plugging. However I do also bait fish, currently fish a St. Croix, but will add a Lami Surf King. I figure I still get a Lami, but Im not overly concerned with casting on something I'll primarily bait fish with.

Looking for a plugging rod for my ABU 6600 Morum. I have the smaller lami XS86 and it is a real winner, never tried the Arra's or Tri-Flex but have heard huge reviews on both.

LOL SB!!! She was a little mystified when I went to sleep with it that night .. I told her that this was a new addition to the family ..I think I pushed the issue the next morning when I set a place setting for the reel.. Currently, my medication has been effective and seem to be getting along well if other fishermen.....Hey cast the other F@@@ way! don't ya see that I'm pluggin with my VS?? Some people never understand .. ok- time for another pill..lol!

TIght lines!

You guys are two much "set a place for it at the table." Good advice though I dont think she would appreciate me dropping another $300 on a stick since she just bought me the Morrum for Christmas. "Paging K-Mart specials"

Ron Arra all the way baby
